image of Evaluating and Rewarding the Quality of Teachers: International Practices

Drawing on relevant international research, including information from experts’ presentations and papers given at the December 2008 Joint Conference between the OECD and the Government of Mexico, this book sets out good practice in the design and implementation of incentive systems for teachers. With this aim in mind, the book provides analysis and discussion of the design and implementation of incentive systems for teachers as well as guidance on what should be rewarded and how it should it be measured, who should be rewarded, how they should they be rewarded and how policies should be developed and implemented to ensure stakeholder engagement and commitment.

Design Components of Incentive Pay Programmes in the Education Sector

Education reform is increasingly focused on human capital formation because high-quality teachers are seen as the most direct and effective pathways to improving student achievement. Based on the argument that prevailing compensation practices provide weak incentives for teachers, and that inefficiencies arise from rigidities in current compensation policies, several national systems of public education have explored teacher compensation reforms (Podgursky and Springer, 2007).1 Proponents argue that financial incentives can motivate teachers to achieve higher levels of performance, entice more effective teachers to join or remain in the teaching profession, and align teacher behaviours and interests with institutional goals.
